In Case You Wanted To Know..

In case you wanted to know what the heck has been going on in my life, I decided to write and catch you all up.  So a LOT has happened over the past month. 

I will start by letting you know, my brother-in-law got called up to the Big Leagues two weeks ago so we took a last minute trip to Boston to watch his games. I had never been to Boston so it was a fun mini vacation. We got to be tourists for the weekend which was fun!
We saw all the pretty buildings that the city had, went to the Cheers bar, Fenway Park (of course!), got to hang out on the Green Monster, ate at Wahlburgers, and saw everything the city had to offer!

It was such a neat and historical city and I would love to go back! My BIL pitched a game which was great to watch! Since he is the new one on the team, he has to wear a Pokemon backpack around the team.

We are heading to Oakland this weekend to watch them play and I cannot wait! Follow my little life journey on instagram @lisa_nicole22 or on twitter @mrsfloro22.

Life's An Adventure

I have always been obsessed with photos. I even told my wedding photogorapher that I wanted ALL the photos he took. The bad, the good, the awkward, ALL of them. To me, each photo tells a different story and I remember certain moments from where it was taken. 

Since I already own a Cannon Rebel T3i that I totally LOVE, I knew I needed something I could travel with that was waterproof, and smaller so I could carry it along with me. I have wanted a GoPro for a while, but it wasn't a necessity as we didn't travel as much and I wanted to wait until I really really needed it. 

Well you guys, it happened. I took the plunge and bought one! With our recent Sea Doo purchase, our constant river trips, and our upcoming two-week Alaska vacation, I knew I wanted something I could take with me that took great photos and was compact enough to have in my purse! (I also have really wanted to hook it on to our Sea Doo to get some cool shots!) I also had No idea that it had so many awesome qualities, such as being able to view and share photos with the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.

I spent days researching for the perfect fit. I knew I wanted a touch screen so I could view the photos and video after I took them, so that was a must! I went with the HERO4 Silver, listed at $399 on the site, however I always check Amazon for deals and found it for $359! Saving me $40 that I could use towards some fun gear (ie: Selfie stick, handlebar mount--for the sea doo! and more) I am so excited to try it out this weekend when we head to Lake Shasta to stay on a houseboat. (Which features a slide and hot tub- holla!)

I am excited for all our upcoming adventures and will be able to catch them all on camera!

P.S. If you use Amazon Prime, make sure you set up your Amazon Smile so that every purchase you make, a portion donates to your favorite charity! I chose Southern California Dachshund Relief, since it's local and I love my two dachshunds so much! It costs you nothing additional to donate and it automatically does it when you use to make your purchases.

Do you have a GoPro? If so, do you have ANY tips/tricks for me?

Food For Thought

I know there are a TON of "food delivery" sites out there, but I really wanted to introduce to you MUNCHERY.  It is different than all the other food delivery apps out there.  There's no memberships, no commitments, so you can literally just visit the website, and schedule which day you want your food to be delivered.  You can choose which meal you want, sides, drinks, desserts.  As much or as little as you want. (Plus shipping is included you guys!)

The prices are super reasonable too! And much cheaper than if you were to buy them at a restaurant, plus you don't need to tip! (Bonus!)

The options change daily and weekly. So if you know you are going to be busy next Thursday, you can schedule to have something delivered to you ahead of time.  Easy peasy!
If you visit Munchery the morning of, you can even have some last minute meals delivered same day!  They do sellout of the most popular items, so make sure to schedule it as soon as you realize you need some good food! And YES they do sell wine and beer too! WINNING!

When you use my link, after your first order (regardless of how much you decide to order) you will get $20 to use how you please!

*Although I use affiliate links throughout this post, these are my honest unbiased opinions. I truly love the idea of Munchery!

Have you tried Munchery?

...And I'm back!

I know it's been a while since I've written any content.  I sincerely apologize for that, and really need to up my game here! I really just need to shake it out of me! I was browsing blogs and came across the lovely Shannon from Champagne at Shannon's. This post really got me inspired to write again.

I will catch you up on what I've been up to the last few months, and what's to come in the near future!

Over the past few months I've really focused on my website and online shop <<If you haven't already heard it's called Showered With Design>> 
I branched out, bought a domain, and now run both my Etsy shop AND my own online shop. My online shop offers much more than my Etsy shop does. From boutique baby items to jewelry to glittered drink-ware. I can truly say that I LOVE what I do, and am so excited to bring more in the future!  

My husband and I recently started a whole "Eating healthier," "Start workout plans" yada yada.  I wish I had more to tell, but we literally just started yesterday. With summer and river season just around the corner, and our bad habit late night eats, we both knew we needed to change our ways. We wrote a list of things to buy from the store, started including healthier ideas, without going too overboard.  We aren't "cutting" things out necessarily, but more-so portion control.  Our menu for the first few days so far:
  • 1 slice whole wheat toast with peanut butter and 1 banana for breakfast
  • 1 hard boiled egg, 1 avocado, and 1 cup of cottage cheese with tomato slices for lunch
  • Monday: Chicken Breast, Steamed Broccoli, 1 Cup of carrots, and 1/2 Cup cottage cheese
  • Tuesday: 3 oz. Steak, Grilled Corn, Sliced tomatoes 
  • Wednesday: Chicken breast salad, with corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, with Italian dressing.
I know implementing healthier options is going to give us the jump start to feeling better. I already notice that I feel much more satisfied not stuffing my face full, but really portioning out our food.  I already eat pretty slow and that helps me get full faster.
We will be working out too! (Which I haven't done in quite some time-- Embarrassing, I know.) Stay tuned!

What are your healthy habits, go-to inspirational sites, social media outlets to help keep you on track?
